My name is Beth Amato. I’m a Johannesburg-based freelance writer and editor with a rich portfolio spanning over a decade.  This webpage showcases my work.  Whatever you need written, I can craft.

I have written extensively on trauma and my story on crime and violence, published by News24, won Media Monitoring Africa’s 2017 Isu Elihle Award.  My main focus, talent and passion is early childhood development, inspired by my time at the Dart Center at Columbia University in New York City.

My children Amelie and Gabriel love books, and this is my proudest achievement.
